We went to Local Boy twice during our week on Maui and loved everything about it. The shave ice is insanely good, and the free scoop of ice cream underneath is a great addition (my favorite was the Snow White with vanilla mac nut ice cream). The ladies who run the shop are friendly and fun, and being able to... More

With so many flavours and fine shaved ice...this is hands down the best shave ice on the planet. You will never be disappointed here! Can't wait to get back to maui for more.

We have been on Maui for two weeks and eaten shave ice at nearly every stand we passed. Local Boys in Kihei is absolutely the best! The ladies are so kind, chat with us and one even made herself a bowl and pulled up a chair. Our boys only want Local Boys now!

My longer kid and I woke up early due to jet-lag and walked in to this place for breakfast and coffee. We found they have all kinds of fresh drinks and yummy morning sets...really enjoyed the relaxing moment!

We tried several shave ices at a variety of shops on Maui, but Local Boys was by far the best. We visited the store on Front St. in Lahaina. The young woman behind the counter was super friendly, and helpful in explaining all the extensive flavors and options, despite the store being quite busy. The ice itself is finely shaved,... More

When you are in Hawaii you need to have shaved ice. This little place is close to many restaurants. The young lady working was super helpful. Check it out.

Localboys is a must when visiting maui, the shave ice is the softest , great tasting Flavors, and a wonderful staff. They also have some of the prettiest coconut girls working at both locations in Kihei and Lahaina ! Not to mention their bomb signature sweet cream ! 😍 Definitely check out this local stand!

We heard snowcones...I mean...shave ice is a must! Don't call it snowcones...I think it might be illegal down there to call it that ;) We saw lots of people eating these, so we had to give it a try. There's lots of spots to get shave ice, but heard local boy was the best. Lots of flavours to choose from...maybe... More
